The class analyzes structural econometric models of economics and politics. By “structural” model I mean cases where a researcher (i) builds a formal theoretic model, then (ii) derives a likelihood function from that model, then (iii) estimates parameters of the formal model by maximizing the likelihood function. Some particular structural models that the class will examine are: McFadden’s model of urban travel demand (the first example, as far as I am aware, of a logistic regression in social science), Poole and Rosenthal’s NOMINATE scores for legislators, and McKelvey and Palfrey’s Quantal Response Equilibrium model to analyze game-theoretic interactions.
